Tier Ranking System

Welcome to the newly-minted Tier Ranking System! There are 10 Tiers in total, ranging from Tier I to Tier X. The way this system works is that you do different things in the clan to gain (or lose) points. Each Tier is achieved by advancing 25 points. So Tier I would be from 0-24 points, Tier II would be 25 to 49 points, and so on. Your point count and current Tier will be listed under your banner in the home post. For the time being, it is your responsibility to keep track of your points and to report them to me via the "TRS Points" PM thread. Here are different ways you can gain points and the restrictions that go along with them:

Joining the clan and being initiated as a member: 5 points
Commenting in a discussion (only one post per discussion counts): 1 point
Posting a new discussion/question (one per day): 3 point
Winning a battle against a clanmate (one battle with each clanmate per week): 3 points
Winning a battle in a clan war: 10 points
Winning a battle against a leader (once per month per leader unless they decide otherwise): 5 points
Adding to Clan Art & Graphics (provided that it's acceptable): 5 points

Here are different ways you can lose points:

Blatant double posting: -3 points
Blatant triple posting: -5 points
Being inactive for three days (without due warning or explanation): -5 points
Being a dick (yes, this is a real rule): -15 points

There are other, one time only ways to gain points as well, such as in contests and tournaments, but the amount of points rewarded will vary per activity.


For people whom we have yet to decide to either let in the Clan or let go.

Members that have not been active in the clan for a week or more will be removed from the Member Roster and stripped of any rank held.
Don't let this happen to you!

We sincerely honor the veterans of our Clan here.

Yeah! That'd be awesome! Though it'd be a bit difficult to find the weakness of the move.

I've got no problem explaining it . you know how there are pokemon that have two types? like houndoom is dark and fire... well what if there were moves that were two types as well?

I have actually wanted to try out moves like that quite a few times
and to teach a specific move to a pokemon it would have to share at least one of the types or you would have to breed the move to it

Also in my fandoms can you add Spiderman and Doctor Who please

Who's your favorite Doctor?

I've never thought of that before, but it'd probably be useful.
However, I think it'd make everything a lot more complicated.
Like, what if there was a Ghost/Bug move used against a Normal type? Would it work at all, due to a Normal-type's Ghost immunity or would it just fall back on Bug-Type and how effective would it be then?

My favorite of the new Doctors is David Tennant
I do not have an old Doctor favorite but I am watching the old series now

also there are two ways to do
this both effectiveness 'charts' combine and calculate ghost/bug would do no damage to normal
or the attack type would match the user's type as best as possible or randomly oscillate between the two types

I'm a big Ninth fan. I haven't watched the older ones either, I'm too caught up in The Twilight Zone.

but then you have to add in items too. Such as Miracle Seed for grass moves. Let's say it was a Ghost/Grass move against a Normal type (not to mention if it has a secondary type...) Would it still up the grass-part effect, or would it be Ghost dominate? And if it did amplify the move, then by how much, if it did have any effect at all?

I'm not trying to rain on anyone's parade, I don't really like battling anyways. xD it's just confusing to me. x__X

Jperry87 Wow a-rin is right that is confusing, once you start thinking about it. At fist I thought you meant like if you're in a double battle two Pokemon would join together to use one super move or something. But if you mean Dual typing moves that sounds cool but I don't get how the concept would work. In the TV Show they've already done the combining moves thing, so that I understand a little better than the dual-typing thing.

So this is another question for everyone. What do you think Game Freak would do, dual-typing moves or combination-moves (for doubles battles)?

well if you think about it they already have combo moves. think of fire pledge, water pledge, grass pledge... all those moves are weak on there own but if used together in a double battle it's pretty solid!!! and yeah dual type moves would be so weird and confusing. it was just a random thought

Jperry87 Oh yeah forgot Dual types it is then. We'll see, if it happens. It would make the game really complicated for the really young ones who play the game, oh well. Pokemon would get a lot more interesting in terms of battling, I would definitely get let behind lol
